This is an installation package for the game Stratosphere: Conquest of the Skies, patched for modern versions of Windows, with easy to use desktop and/or start menu shortcuts and an uninstall option for quick removal.
Important! Please note: Stratosphere is a buggy game. It was buggy in 1998 and it's still buggy now. I've done as much as I can to mitigate this, but you will run into problems occasionally. These include, but may not be limited to:
-Music randomly deciding to stop working on some missions
-Camera controls sometimes deciding to not work (pressing Esc twice fixes this)
-The mouse cursor is stuttery/leaves trails between missions (this is because of the ddraw wrapper used, but without it the cursor often disappears between missions which is much worse)
As an added failsafe in case anything hangs, I added an instant quit key function via AutoHotkey - just press the End key on the keyboard and the game will instantly exit.
Zomb's Lair is the passion project of a long-time PC gamer dedicated to bringing old classics to a modern audience, while eliminating all of the hurdles that that normally entails.

Wish I could get this to work!
Can't get the the title page. The Kodiak, Ripcord and initial game video plays, but I can't seem to get it to load to the screen where you build your fortress, game settings, etc. Direct3D keeps failing, but I can't find anything to install to fix!
